  • Did it myself compressor station

    I have three gas wells on my farm that were drilled in 2005
    I get a certain number of cubic feet of gas for "domestic use" I hope that includes my family's cars and a tractor! I bought a 97 Ford Crown Victoria on Ebay last spring, talk about getting the cart before the horse. I then spent 5 months trying to purchase or build a 3000 PSI compressor. After trying to find a good used fuelmaker, I finally located a Bauer 4 stage air compressor, with a 2 cyl kohler gasoline engine. I converted the Kohler to a NG carburator, and did the necessary plumbing on the K 15 Bauer to make it safe for NG. I have a 5500 cubic ft storage bottle array that should hold 4 or 5 fillings for the Ford. I still have to find a few more parts to complete the installation, should be running by mid march 08.
    My next project will be to convert a Saab 9000 to CNG. I own a Saab/Subary repair shop and prefer a Saab to a Ford. I have a set of 4 Crown Vic tanks. Any body have a suggestion for a Fuel injection system for a turbo 4 cyl 225hp.

    The oil Companies can just practically forget about getting any of your money.

      given the high octane rating of ngas, you should look at one of the turbocharged Saabs...
